this is Joerg speaking after all.
I hope this mail finds everybody well and everybody is in easy beasy Christmas mood already.
The first leg of the European tour with Helloween is over – time to have a few words with you.
First of all lets not forget the brilliant emergency rescue action and playing of Alex, thanx again for all what you did for the fans, the band and also for me.
Surely I hate the idea of somebdy is sitting on "my chair" but this special action needed some special treatment and I am proud and happy that it was you Alex. Thanx again, we see around for a real drink, not like these other Scandinavian pussies in the band:-)))
I was overwhelmed by all the wishes, tons of emails and text messages I received from all over the world wishing me a speedy recovery.
Thank you so much for supporting me and it made me feel very strong fighting this bastards inside of me.
I have some good news to tell you and believe me - I really enjoy to tell the world:
The surgery was done about 6 weeks ago and the first therapy is done as well.
All looks good so far and as Jens told me before:
"Do not worry Jörg, what should survive in your body after all what you did to him!"
Finally he was right, there are only small bits and bobs left - I will fight those with another therapy in about 4 month time.
I think I have been very lucky that it was discovered by one of my friends in a very early state.
Very good that my friend decided to become a doctor, he was very lousy when he tried playing the guitar.
Besides I am preparing myself for Christmas, I am currently practicing the drums to be ready and kickin again when the tour continues in the new year.
I will be back, thanx again for everything and lets get alive and kicking once again, see you in Paris and everywhere else......
